Eric Mack, who was schooled at Syracuse University ('98), is one of the most widely read and respected fantasy sports analysts in the world. A veteran of sports journalism since the early 1990s, he has been a lead fantasy writer for CBSSports.com, Sports Illustrated magazine, SI.com and now Bleacher Report, where he will serve as the Fantasy Football Lead Writer for the 2014 season. When you don't find him there, on his social media platforms (Twitter @EricMackFantasy and Facebook), on the radio/TV, or his podcast (Fantasy FatCast), check the local adult softball diamonds, a sports pub or a youth football field. He is currently working on his first book project on coaching youth football for third- and in the Boston area, in addition to cranking out fantasy content for the burgeoning B/R sports media beast. All this doesn't leave much time for hobbies. You can hit him up for fantasy advice here, but don't bother arguing with what he tells you. "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
So I'm drafting from the 8th pick in a 10-team standard league with 0.5 PPR. Can guarantee that Peterson, Charles, McCoy, Forte, Lynch, and Johnson will be taken before it gets to me. Assuming Lacy gets picked up, too, would you recommend Graham over a RB or WR? I feel like I'd be reaching for a second round RB with my first pick, and I'm committed to holding out for my QB. With the 13th pick, I will be almost guaranteed to land a top-3 WR. It's just that, after Lacy, I don't see Foster, Martin, or even Murray, Bell, or Ball as first-rounders. Any thoughts? Thanks for the articles.
You are literally one of the worst writers i have ever read. I have read comments you have left on your articles where you inform the readers to not read your articles. Really smart move telling readers to go elsewhere. I hope your bosses see that

I would like to let you know that the Raiders have another RB in Latavius Murray to compete for carries and if your East coast bias wasn't so flagrant you would actually research and found about this young player. Maybe if he was a Patriot or a Jet you would know. Be profesional on your reports and don't let your fandom get the best out of you.
You are a garbage writer....way to predict that round 1 draft picks will start. Thanks for wasting my time idiot.
I need some urgent advice for playoff week 16. Wide receivers I need to start 2, I have Antonio Brown, Demaryius Thomas and Josh Gordon. And RB I need to choose from Lacy and Morris. I would really appreciate some help. Thanks.
Eric, Thanks for all of the great fantasy advice. Can you advise who I should start in my fantasy superbowl (week 16) -
Romo, Kap, or Cousins?
Romo has been putting up great fantasy points this season (for this most part), despite all of the nonsense he has been through. One of the games he did not perform however, was against Washington in Week 6 at home! It was one of his worst of the season. Second, Romo is coming off a game where NOT running the ball cost him the game. Third, the redskins have one of the worst run defenses in the league. Considering all of that, Dallas is likely to leverage Murray to run the ball more than not. Fourth, Romo is not a good performer historically in January or February.
Cousins...unproven QB, however coming off a hot game, and is playing THE WORST pass defense in the league. He is also playing for his career in this game, so he is going to throw the ball early and often. Yes, he may throw a few interceptions and fumble the ball once or twice, but he will also successfully get the ball to Garcon, Moss, Davis etc.
Kap, playing ATL (bad pass defense), on MNF (where he usually performs well), but he's been a dud this season and I feel that they will fun the ball more in this game.
Please let me know your thoughts on who I should go with.
Hey Eric. I am in 12-man league. I need a flex player this week. My options are; Rice, VJax, Ridley, or Ivory. Also, Romo hasn't look that good on the road, why the number 1 QB ranking?
